Neck Pain Symptoms, Treatments and Solutions

There’s a reason why “pain in the neck” has become an idiom – the saying hints to just how frustrating a painful neck condition can be! At Progressive Spine & Sports Medicine, home to Bergen County, NJ’s premier non-invasive pain management clinic, we work with hundreds of people just like you who struggle with neck pain, and help them achieve better outcomes that last.

COMMON CAUSES OF NECK PAIN

Every neck is different. That’s why our staff takes the time and attention needed to investigate and identify the underlying cause of your neck pain and other symptoms, which will help us determine the best course of treatment for you.

Common neck pain causes include:

Contributing factors to these issues may include anything from auto or sports-related injuries to “text neck,” otherwise known as the poor posture we sustain while utilizing handheld digital devices.

NECK PAIN & ASSOCIATED SYMPTOMS

If you have neck pain, you probably notice other issues, too. This is due to the intricate connection between the connective tissues of your head, neck, shoulders, and upper back – a problem in one area often leads to a problem in another area.

For instance, our patients commonly report neck stiffness, headaches, shoulder pain, increased muscle tension, numbness and/or weakness in one or both arms (especially if a cervical nerve is involved), stiffness, and decreased tolerance to exercise, desk work, and sleep.
